Vanity/Nemesis is the fifth studio album by Swiss heavy metal band Celtic Frost, released on April 11, 1990 through Noise Records.
Celtic Frost - Vanity/Nemesis: Or How Tom Got His Groove Back. This is probably the only overlooked CF album. Notice I said "overlooked". Indeed, Vanity/Nemesis is the forgotten Celtic Frost album, and it definitely needs more attention in the grand scheme of things. The music on the album is not easy to define. There are few doom or black metal elements, but simply calling it thrash or heavy metal does not work on any level, either.
Few bands in the metal world get a second chance after a major career misstep, and no band exemplifies this problem more than Celtic Frost. Two albums ago (Into the Pandemonium), they were pioneering avant-garde sensibilities in the thrash genre and wooing audiences and critics with their vast abilities. Then everyone but leader Tom Warrior quit the band, and the next album (Cold Lake) ushered in a new sound and a glam image that turned fans and critics away in droves
Inconsistent, but still good. Stop acting like it isn’t. The result of this was 1990’s Vanity/Nemesis album, which is still often viewed today as one of Celtic Frost’s worst releases along with Cold Lake, and because the album is fairly inconsistent and isn’t executed nearly as well as the band’s older material, it’s easy to understand such criticism. Not only that, but it also far outshines Into The Pandemonium and Cold Lake.
